I learned of Mike's passing from this site. We went to grade school, Bible school, junior high and Valley. I moved to California and lost tract of everyone. From reading this site, I learned of his life achievements. He was always a basic hard working American and I am proud to have called him "friend" for so many years

I remember Mike with fond memories. If my memory is correct, he invited me on my first date. I think it was to a dance.  Jeannine Scott Jenks
